March-April bracelet sales benefit Cody’s Friends. Cody’s Friends is a 501(c)(3) non-profit started by Cody Allen in 2011 when he was 10 years old. Cody’s Friends supports the crucial bond between human and animal welfare. Those in need will do all they can for their pet…even if it means feeding them their own food. Thousands of people in need in Pima County depend on Cody’s Friends for pet food. Over 48 human service agencies and 100+ animal rescue groups and shelters also come to Cody’s Friends for pet food and supplies.
This precious pup was rescued at only 4 weeks old, way too early to be weaned. Her mom brought her to Cody’s Friends to see if we could help. Thanks to donations dropped at our pet food collection stations, we had puppy formula, as well as other supplies needed for her health and safety. Precious baby, we wish you a long, happy, healthy life and if you need us….we’ll be here.
KOLD recently ran a story on the combination of inflation and decreased pet food donations, and how these have affected on Cody’s Friends: https://www.kold.com/2023/04/06/inflation-hurting-pet-owners-animal-organizations/. You can help Cody’s Friends provide food for deserving pets like by purchasing one-of-a-kind, handcrafted Beading Divas bracelets.
Cost per bracelet is $20. The bracelets make great gifts anytime of year! The best selection is online via Etsy but in Tucson you can also buy bracelets at Fuchsia Spa in La Encantada Shopping Center, and Silver Sea Jewelry, in the historic 4th Avenue Shopping District. Silver Sea is open Tuesday-Sunday from noon-6pm (masks and social distancing required.)
